Hello all, my name is Annie and I have the blog Zevy Joy. I am thrilled to be joining you here today at Lemons to Lovelys! Thank you Marci for inviting me along. I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of greenery and flowers throughout the home. Even more, I specifically love eucalyptus. I am going to share all the different ways to arrange eucalyptus throughout the home.
While this typical filler is used in combination with bouquets of florals, I really enjoy it in all its forms. You can find seeded, spiral or silver dollar varieties. So here is the first suggestion when displaying this pretty foliage,
Arrange it in a Vase (yes this may seem obvious, but it is a good one 😉
Like I said earlier, eucalyptus can be gorgeous all on its own as it really hangs, dances and drapes beautifully. It doesn’t take a lot of work to use it in this way. The example is faux, but either will do wonderful.
Place it in a Basket…
I have had this spiral eucalyptus grouped together in an apple basket for a while now. It fills up the space, gives height to the area and a little bit of green anywhere goes a long way. This variety is dried so it doesn’t require any maintenance which is always a good thing.
Use A Single Branch…
Sometimes I like to just take a single branch and place it in a delicate small vase. This type of arrangement is perfect for any bedside, tray table or bathroom vanity. Don’t underestimate the impact this little branch can make.
Mix it all Together…
Both of these are faux versions above, one that is to look fresh and alive while the other is made to look as though it is turning with the seasons. Since fall has nearly arrived, combining the two seemed like an appropriate idea.
Flowers arranged with eucalyptus is always a classic way to decorate. Some of the eucalyptus is drying, but still remains pretty in my opinion. Just another reason to love it, as it will stick around for a long time.
Branches and seeded varieties fill the vessel below and make it casually fancy.
And when you aren’t using it in a vase or as part of a floral arrangement… Think outside of the box and use it elsewhere.
Place it in a Tray as Filler with Produce and More…
During the fall it is paired nicely with pumpkins and in a deep wicker tray.
Incorporate it as part of your Place Settings…
I easily stuffed a branch into this napkin ring. Isn’t that the definition of pretty and simple?!
Lastly, since Christmas is right around the corner, I couldn’t resist sharing last year’s Christmas tree. I wasn’t joking when I said that I love this stuff ;). So much so, that I accented our entire tree with glittery, faux, dried, and real eucalyptus. It is still one of my favorite trees and I am certain it will find its way back again this time around.
I hope you enjoyed this post and that these little tips will be helpful as you may find the many ways to arrange eucalyptus throughout your home.
Marci thank you again for having me today as you inspire me with all the beauty and creativity you share here on your lovely blog.
